NotTheSignShop | Maker | Studio | Middlesex, Vermont

We are Not. NotTheSignShop.

We are a Vermont-based Maker studio pursuing novel applications of technologies and materials, exploring connections between traditionally separate domains and ways of working, and building the unconventional in an improvisational style.

Happily at the intersection of CUSTOM DESIGN, NON-TRADITIONAL SIGNMAKING, and the EXPERIMENTAL, we partner with our clients to help the space around them convey who they are quickly, effectively, and with lasting results.

NotTheSignShop is a loose collaboration among several artists. To grant the artistic freedom and ability-to-experiment that anonymity provides, regular members receive an artist tag. Currently on the site are the works of Unruly-e, Pooks, and Fluffy.

Our shop is on a dirt road just north of Tangletown, in Middlesex, Vermont and open by appointment:

Materials tests for bakery



Our goal is to build something unique to DD Bakery, conveying the desired feelings of old, familiar, and Europe. Wood is the natural choice to start with, and we wanted to find out how it would combine with other elements we may want to use.

This is the start of our testing process. We make lots of notes and use lots of materials because we never know when we will find something that will later be perfect for another application.

And don't worry, Tim, we haven't changed up the color scheme - the pink is just a test strip!
